The event is part of a new Beatles festival to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. An enchanting FREE light festival is set to take place in Liverpool as part of the Sgt Pepper at 50 festival - and you can enjoy a moonlit picnic while watching it.
The Suspended Time light festival will take place on Woolton ’s Camp Hill - close to where Paul and John met for the first time at St Peter's Church.
The event has been inspired by Lucy, the girl with kaleidoscope eyes, from John Lennon’s song Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds and the location will be transformed into a unique magical land for one night only.

It will be unlike any event ever staged before in the city and it is part-performance, part-storytelling and part-pyrotechnic display. The show is being produced by Christophe Berthonneau and Groupe F - the French team behind the opening and closing ceremonies at last year’s Rio Olympics .
The fun begins at 8pm with local organisations Lantern Company, Circo Rum Ba Ba, Caustic Widows and Anna Mulhearn lighting up the park with strange and superb street theatre. The main display will then begin at 10.30pm because it needs to be pitch black to create the best effect. It will last for around half an hour.
Families are being encouraged to bring food with them so they can enjoy a moonlit picnic - but don’t forget to take something warm.
It is a FREE EVENT and because it falls during the school half-term, families won't need to worry about it being a late night.
The event takes place on Thursday, June 1 between 8pm to 11.30pm. This is the first time the council has used this space for a large-scale outdoor event before, so people are urged to consider the timings of the event and plan their journeys to and from the area in advance.
